A new television home for the UFC is expected in the UK this summer as part of the British Telecom Group's continuing expansion and growth into the digital television market, and after ESPN's failed bid to be a major sports TV player.

The reason why the UFC didn't got to SKY TV is because Sky aren't interested in MMA content and won't pay for coverage.
